IEEE Standards Education helps to create awareness and understanding of the importance of standards and standardization and the critical role standards play in industry and society.


IEEE Standards Education

As the world's leading standards developer, IEEE is also a leading source of information and resources on standards, their applications, and their impact on designing new products, processes, and services. Standards Education is driven by the IEEE Standards Education Committee (SEC), a joint standing committee of the IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) Board of Governors, and the IEEE Educational Activities Board (EAB).

IEEE is building the IEEE Standards University as part of its commitment to:

  • Promote the importance of standards in meeting technical, economic, environmental, and societal challenges;
  • Disseminate learning materials on the application of standards in the design and development aspects of educational programs;
  • Actively promote the integration of standards into academic programs;
  • Provide short courses about standards needed in the design and development phases of professional practice.
